I agree, Joe, that Maytag (MYG) does appear to bea strong buy at this point. My reasons for thisopinion are-1. Standard & Poor's recently raisedits credit rating.2. CEO Hadley said 1998will be a very good year and EPS should once againbeat analysts estimates and set records. 3.Sales agreements with Sears and other retailers willcontinue to broaden Maytag's markets.4. Based oncurrent price of $48 3/4, 1998 PE of 18 and 1999projected PE of 16 are much lower than overallmarket.5. Stock has corrected 13% from its recenthigh.6. New home sales are at a record high, meaning manymore washers/dryers, etc. will be needed.7.Upgrades will be coming from 3 major brokerage houseswithin the next month.There are other positivefactors that I will send you, Joe, when I have more time.
